Even before uni Jeff was interested in real estate and worked for a real estate company while he was at college.

Jeff advises that when you’re selling a security remember that all public money is securities. If you’re giving a sponsor money and you’re taking passive role then the sponsor is selling a security to you. But if you’re both taking an active role in the investment then you’re selling a partnership and no single sponsor is selling a security to someone else.
